Question about HP Pavilion ze5185 Notebook
This laptop seems to work perfectly except for the time. It only keeps the time when the laptop is on. It wont update with the windows XP time server, I have to set it manually.
I have changed the CMOS battery with no luck. The old CMOS battery was a rechargeable Maxell ML1220 at 3 volts and it still had most of its charge.
Does someone know if I am using the correct voltage for the battery or is there something else I am missing?
Replacing the battery should do it. As long as you've got 2.7-3.3v coming from the battery you should be alright. These rechargeable can indeed run out of juice though and it's also possible that some part of the mechanism or firmware that works to keep it charged could be having problems.
None of that would explain why Windows' own time update fails though. What kind of error does it give when you attempt to update the time? Or does it update and shift out of whack immediately?

They are all rechargable you need to keep sufficient charge in battery.imagine if you didnt charge your mobile phone for 6mth.
